|Samsung’s Upcoming Smartphone Is An Apple Iphone X Killer by Techknowng(m): 9:29am On Dec 05, 2017|
We all love the next generation flagship smartphone from Apple, dubbed as the Apple iPhone X (except for the price tag). The main reason that the flagship from the Cupertino tech giant caught our attention for the fact that, the smartphone offers an almost bezel-less design with a notchy notch. If we think Samsung as the stark laboratories, then this will be the Iron Man’s smartphone.
If we look at the Apple iPhone X, the OLED display on the device is manufactured by Samsung, so, now they know it all and the Korea is ready to take on the United States (Not Kim Jong Un’s Korea, but the other one). If the rumours are to be believed, Samsung is working on a revolutionary smartphone (word is inspired by Apple keynotes), which completely changes the perspective of a smartphone with all aspects.
As a matter of fact, the Samsung smartphones already have a truly bezel-less design (just has top and bottom bezels). However, the upcoming (no speculated time frame) Samsung smartphone will have a quad-curved display, so, for this smartphone, there are no bezels what so ever.
Achieving this engineering marvel is not easy as it looks. In fact, the technology behind this idea involves of bending the actual display from all the corners to give it a proper shape. After the display, other technical challenges for this smartphone is the placement of sensors, selfie camera, main microphone, and the fingerprint scanner.
Samsung might try to solve these puzzle in the following fashion. As the current generation flagship smartphones already have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, the company is expected to leave that feature undisturbed, however, there are chances for the display mounted biometric scanner as well. So, for the phone might use a Piezoelectric Ceramic Acoustic Technology instead of the microphone (which was used on the Xiaomi Mi MIX). Just like the display mounted biometric scanner, the company might offer a display mounted the front-facing camera as well (Samsung has all the resources it needs to develop out of the box technology).
As we recently said, this smartphone might use a graphene ball based batteries, which is expected to offer faster-charging speed (takes 12 minutes to charge from nothing to 100 percent). So, this will be a truly next-generation smartphone with each one of the parts re-engineered to work with the new ecosystem.
To conclude, at least for the first few generation, the smartphone is expected to retail at a higher margin compared to other flagship smartphones. So, if Samsung retails the smartphone for (say $2000) it will be due to technical difficulties of the production. However, over the time frame, the smartphone is expected to share the internals with its siblings and by that time we can expect smartphones which can do more than this.
So, one may ask when can we expect a smartphone like this from Samsung. We at the Phone bulletin believe that this technology will not be available to the end users at least until 2019. So, it’s better to start saving your money to buy the smartphone from the future.

iPhone X was already killed before it's debut by S8. What are you killing again?

Features wise, the iPhone X is not at all groundbreaking. And there are several phones with similar performance.
But let's see now, the next-gen Galaxy S-series.
